The Cost of an Addict

Longtime friends gone

Family estranged

Mothers' tears and heartbreak

Broken trusts with siblings

Loyalty to family gone

Pride of oneself gone

Society's laws disobeyed,

God's laws broken

The high cost to be an addict

Is high

The cost to keep living as one

Or to die

Being in jail a one

The costs of an addict are high

Are  they worth a lifetime of highs

To you?

The End
